State College

Hindi, is the national language of India. This has caused quite a stir,
as there are more than 20 languages in India and more than 1000 dialects.
Hindi, however is spoken by the most people. Over 200 million people speak
Hindi as their mother tongue.

In this picture, Hindi is being written with Henna. Henna also known as Mehendi, is a
plant, whose dye is used in art forms in India. During weddings, it is customary for all
the women to have their hands and feet painted with henna. It is also used to dye hair.
Henna is a coolant, thus is very prominent in the desert areas.

You've created some very wonderful images in a unique alphabet gallery. It is an unusual gift to be able to not only visually stir people, but add a second element as well; in this case, learning more about a very fascinating culture. Excellent job.
